THE Excelsior Farms Inc. (EFI) held two simultaneous outreach programs last Dec. 22, as a way of giving back to the community.
The employees of EFI, which provides sustainable and quality supply of swine livestock in the country, cancelled their Christmas party and celebrated the season with the children living with cancer and their families at the Everlasting Hope, a non-profit center for children with cancer in Happy Valley, Cebu City.
It was a cheerful event as the management and employees of EFI shared not just material gifts, but also the moments of their lives with the brave children.
Touched by the children’s courage, parents’ support and volunteers’ help in the fight against the disease, EFI president and chief operating officer Paul Holaysan shared an inspiring message of hope and love.
He said anyone can make a difference by sharing kindness to the community.
In Barangay Sacsac, Pinamungajan, EFI also held a Christmas party for more than 300 children, who enjoyed the presence of a popular mascot.
The children were treated with meals. Their families received gifts, including sacks of rice.
The day ended with lots of fun and games facilitated by the local village officials led by Sacsac Barangay Captain Jodjet Manguilimotan.
EFI is an innovative and modern swine breeder. It is committed to the advancement of the swine industry and food security of the country.
The company’s unselfish commitment to its principles of “giving back and sharing” is its driving force in all of its corporate social responsibility-related activities.
